Re: At what year do MK1 Lags stop rusting?

Laguna's dunno.
Meg mk1's around 99 had "partially galvanised" chassis and the limited 12 year perforation guarantee, that you still get now.

Sections were galvanised,then assembled?

By 98 apparently there werent many cars on sale that didnt have galvanising of some sort on the chassis.

Maybe check if the model youre looking at had a 12 year perforation guarantee originally?

Any bumps/accidents with chassis distortion and that coating would have been compromised

Steel and rust go together like love and marraige :> rust will allways find a way

Currently in coup's garage:
RM III coupe 1.5dci FVT,Audi TT Mk1 ,a bike and too much rubbish.
